You’ll hear terms like 13×6 and 13×4 lace front when buying wigs. The manufacturer is referring to the lace size under the wig.
As such, a 13×6 frontal wig measures 13 inches across the forehead (from one ear to the other) by six inches (from the hairline to the crown).
Although there’s only a two-inch difference between a 13×4 and a 13×6 wig front, the extra size gives you more room to be creative as you style it. Let’s look at some of those benefits below.
What’s the Difference Between a 13×4 and 13×6 Frontal Wig?
Wigs aren’t cheap; therefore, we want something we can style in many ways.
A 13×6 front wig is more versatile because you have two extra inches of parting space at the front to try more styles. The lace doesn’t end at the top of your head.
Consequently, you can style about half of your head in more ways. For instance, you can style a side part, half up, half down, or a middle part.
On top of that, the 13×6 lace covers a large portion of your head, so your scalp can breathe. It also makes the wig look more natural when the scalp is visible. Since it’s pre-plucked, installation and styling take the least time.
The 13×6 frontal wig can have human or synthetic hair. Of course, human hair is more expensive. However, it’s better looking than synthetic hair, and you can perm or color it.
What Does 13×6 HD Lace Mean?
It’s a high-definition quality lace, almost invisible against your scalp. As such, a wig with 13X6 HD lace is undetectable as it matches your skin tone, giving you a natural hairline.
The best 13×6 HD lace wig comes pre-plucked and bleached. However, frontal lace wigs are more expensive than basic wigs because the manufacturers create the hairline by hand, stitching each strand into the lace.
